manufacturer and inventor of the patented Flexfit stretchable cap, is the official hat sponsor of the 2011 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, a PGA TOUR event.
“Flexfit offers a superior quality and product, and we are thrilled to partner with them for the third consecutive year,” said Adam Sperling, Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open tournament director. “The hats will be an exceptional gift that we’re happy to share with our hard-working volunteers, VIPs and youth at this year’s tournament.”
Flexfit will donate custom embroidered hats and visors to the more than 1,000 volunteers who work from dawn to dusk throughout the week-long charity golf event.

More than 400 children will also receive the unique embroidered gift as they attend the Nevada State Bank Youth Clinic on Sunday, September 25, kicking off the tournament week. The clinic will feature the Dennis Walters Golf Show with special appearances from Las Vegas organizations’ mascots.
“The youth clinic is a free event for children to learn that golf can be fun while enjoying various trick shots and stunts from an inspirational source in Dennis Walters, who is paralyzed from the waist down,” explains Stephanie Maes, tournament services manager for the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. “The hats will be a great way for the kids to stay cool and have as a keepsake once the day concludes.”
